The Manhattan Bridge and the New York City Skyline. "A wonderful person shared a quote last year by Henri Matisse that really resonated with me," says Gucwa."'A large part of the beauty of a picture arises from the struggle which an artist wages with his limited medium.' I think that there is a tremendous amount of truth in the (idea) that when you are limited, you are forced to work extremely hard to get the results you desire."

"The Day Pauses", Botanica, Lower East Side. "I actually find the process of editing phone photography to be far more of a zen experience than editing my digital photos," Gucwa explains. "It could have something to do with the more tactile quality of phone photo editing apps. They're designed to streamline the editing process with results that are strikingly beautiful. It's an exciting time in terms of the sheer number of innovations being made on a regular basis in mobile photography."

"Crossing", Lower Broadway. "I had no formal training in photography, no real knowledge of the rules or major concepts that defined the field," says Gucwa. "Working with the limited tools that I had really enticed me to learn more about light, and set me on a lifelong journey of trying to capture something as fleeting...as the transient quality of New York City."

"Sun Fire", The NYC Skyline in Silhouette at Sunset. "One of my biggest dreams is to one day to have the means to be able to explore the rest of this vast world," confesses Gucwa, "and to capture as much of it as I can with my photography and writing in the same way that I have devoted myself to capturing the essence of New York City with my images and words."

"Wealth of Tales", Doyers Street, Chinatown. "These are streets that represent so much more than merely a geographical spot," Gucwa says of Chinatown. "These streets are the embodiment of a core concept that has defined New York City for many decades. The sheer density of people that grace these streets with their presence seems to imbue (them) with the weight of their aspirations."
